The Maldives


Taking you deep into the undersea world of the one of the Earth’s most jaw-droppingly gorgeous places, your Zegrahm Expeditions Maldives tour offers world-famous snorkeling, visits with hospitable locals in traditional fishing villages and to the lesser-visited atolls of the northern Maldives. This is certainly the way we choose to travel to the Maldives—immersive, engaging and, yes, luxurious—and it brings with it the rewards of adventures to Vangaaru and Utheemu Islands, Baa Atoll, and the private Thulhaagiri Sandbank, where your Maldives tour takes it up a notch with a private afternoon of snorkeling, water play, and a beach BBQ lunch. Get up close and personal with manta rays, hawksbill turtles, and frigate birds, as well as the kaleidoscopic marine life that makes these coral reefs and deep undersea channels their home.
